An open roof and white furniture allows the lighting to be natural in this house and the furniture to be subtle and not distracting

White trim, soft yellow walls, and neutral colored furniture seems to just connect this entire living room together. The art work really pops!

Lastly a sun room that has interesting pieces to enjoy while sipping sweet tea at the end of the night

Hey.. there’s even a stack of books you could read if you really wanted. Although, I’m sure in this house they might be historical and have some sort of artistic significance. <img src="http://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/72×72/1f609.png&quot; alt="
